Love, Peace, Joy and MERRY CHRISTMAS

I have been a busy bee in my studio this week, my creativity is on an artist thats kinda important! Thank you Jesus, all the glory be yours alone.
I am creating a new calender with my artwork at cafepress.  I am very excited, it will be filled with scripture and inspiration. When it is finished I will share the direct link with everyone.
Christmas is a time for Joy, Hope, Love and Jesus. I don't do black friday, because I don't want to buy into the materialistic view of the holidays. I tell people, "Merry Christmas!" I will not conform  to the statis quo of soceity by saying, "Happy Holidays."
As a greatful believer we are ask to do all things to bring glory to the father, through Jesus Christ.
When I chose to be a steward of Jesus in my faith, I chose to honor him not only in words and deeds but in all things. Christmas is no exception, where is our society at today if the whole purpose of the christmas season is forgotten and more focused on the best buys, then on salvation. Jesus was born to save us from our inigutis.  Some would say it is about the bottom dollar of our economy, we need to spend to fix it.
What I believe is we need to take a stand as christians and focus on the Love, Hope, Joy of Jesus.
Praying for a christian moral uprising, praying for peace, praying for healings and planting seeds of Gods words in the hearts of mankind, then we will see a harvest of a better economy.
Col 3:16-17
"Let the teaching of Christ live in you richly. Use all wisdom to teach and instruct each other singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Everything you do or say should be done to obey Jesus your Lord. And in all you do, give thanks to God the Father through Jesus."

This watercolor is a piece from my Seeds, Petals and Harvests.  A simple splash of color here and there and beautyful harvest of flowers.  Inspired by the wild flowers on a trail ride this summer.  I used the splatter technique to represent the seeds being carried in the wind to find new life. I love using bold brush strokes and bright colors to create a joyous flow of water and paint.
God Bless!  Enjoy the Christmas season, spend time with family, friends and rejoicing in Jesus our Lord.
